Legrand Achieves Over 20 Percent Energy-Intensity Reduction in Presidential Challenge

May 17th, 2012 | By | Category: Business

Legrand has announced a more than 20 percent reduction in energy intensity as the result of its first year as part of a Department of Energy program to promote energy efficiency, realize energy and cost savings and spur job creation for communities across the United States.

“Our next goal,” according to Selldorff, “is to implement a ‘showcase’ project at a single site that will achieve a 10 percent energy intensity reduction in just two years.” The company announced it has chosen its West Hartford, Connecticut, company headquarters as the showcase site because, according to Selldorff, the 100-year-old, 263,000 square-foot, multi-use facility presents unique challenges in energy intensity reduction, similar to those faced by mid-sized manufacturers, as well as many existing buildings across the United States.
